Example text

He turned out to be rotten, weird and full of lies. Over the next week, like a magpie he had taken my jewellery and my clothes. He persuaded me to stay in Ireland for the summer solstice. I thought it might make a good story. He’d told me of some parties happening and to be honest it sounded like a good break. My life had been hectic for a long time. He’d told me he was a singer, and I said I’d manage him. So together, armed with staffs made from sticks and lumps of amethyst, we roamed the countryside, often getting in trouble.

I tried to escape once but failed. I made one friend. My dad flew over immediately; my mum followed a week later. My main concern was getting back to my home in London’s Clerkenwell. I was helping to organise a street festival. It took another week and a half to get out of St Brendan’s. People rang me, including the ex. He’d just written a book and dedicated it to me, which added to the stress. I was transferred to Ealing Hospital’s John Connolly Ward. I was there for five weeks. I saw people slit their wrists and fights, but generally it was OK.

The madmen may look like us, but under all that normal stuff, they’re crazy, ready to pounce. This is the real media formula. Understanding mental illness is hard work. Demonising the people who have it is easy. The logic of the media is to play to a prejudice that has been around for centuries. The public likes to feel protected from people who used to be locked away in asylums. Besides which, they don’t answer back. But the real issue here isn’t a psychiatrist writing another ‘the media is to blame’ piece.
